Can you believe this is fake?

I have blogged about the Chicago Diner a few times on here and yet again, we dined there this past Saturday. We were starving and wanted something great to eat but also healthy. We hit up the vegetarian places in Chicago quite a bit but this time Mike suggested the Diner! I was so happy!

As always, our dinners were fantastic. We each had Peak Organic IPA's to drink and shared the vegan potato skins appetizer. For dinner I had to get the radical reuben, it is a true fav of mine, Tender seitan roast ‘beef’ with grilled peppers & onions, sauerkraut, melted soy or swiss cheese and our homemade vegan dressing, on toasted marbled rye. I opt for the soy cheese versus the swiss. This was served with a side salad that was equally amazing! I love their sprouts! I took half home since I knew we were going out "dancing" after and snapped a picture the next day when I was eating it for lunch. Can you believe that it is fake meat!

Mike had the Dagwood sandwich with a side of mac and cheese, Seitan roast & corned “beef”, “bacon” & cheeze, with lettuce, tomato, onion, pepperoncini & spicy sauce on a hoagie. He was a happy camper.

Again, because of the dancing, we opted to skip dessert. But next time that peanut butter puck, neopolitan cheesecake or chocolate chip cookie dough looking cake is mine!
